Goosegrass is a warm season summer annual grassy weed that predominates in exposed, trafficked conditions. Goosegrass germinates about two weeks later than smooth crabgrass. Goosegrass can be identified by the whitish stems at the base that are extremely compressed (flattened). Goosegrass can tolerate heavy traffic, dry compacted soils and low mowing heights.
